Contrasting Cool And Geek

We all know I'm not a fan of Nintendo. That's not what this is about, just a side note to the story.

Apparently, some guy paid a Scottish swordsmith $3,300 to actually make Link's 'Master Sword' from the Legend of Zelda game series.

Now, on one hand, as a fan of blades, I can look on this and appreciate a well-crafted sword. Wonderfully done, and accurate to the last detail, it's a thing of beauty. On the other hand, it makes me want to mail him and ask him when he's gonna put down the controller and get a girlfriend.

Ah well, I guess if you have the money and it makes you happy, go for it. Not like I wouldn't do the same thing with a few 'legendary weapons'...
